    I really love the support at hubpages.  I am slowly learning so much because of it and really enjoy the ride.  Please let me know if I'm on the right track with this one.  Once again, I can take the criticism. Thanks so much.

    Hey Kevin,

    I got put off because of a sore spot with the other hub, so let's see if I can do a better job here on this one.

    1. It's great that you are using the hub karma tool, but it has been suggested that we use it to link to our own hubs that might be relevant to the topic at hand.

    2. The Amazon capsule is a great tool but the space in which you placed it is prime ad space for either Google ads or HP ads. I would move it down.

    3. Spice up your hub with pictures. Look at magazines and think like that when you are setting up the hub. That being said don't put a picture right next to the first capsule or as your first spot before any text in your hub. Again, these are prime spots for ads.

    It appears as if you are writing it all in one capsule, break it up. Do something like Copper Recycling as a header and so forth.

    Not that there really is anything wrong with it but if you want to start generating the pennies so that you can get paid in 2112, lol, then you might want to change things up a bit.

    The hub team gives us some great tools to work with as far as dropping in pictures, maps, video, etc. Put them to work for you. And by the way, welcome to hubpages, glad you are enjoying yourself.

      Thanks for being a good sport and continuing to help me, even though I ruffled some feathers.  You gave me a lot of good advice.  Writing is the easiest thing  to do on hubpages.  I get a little lost with the rest of it.  Maybe old hillbillies like myself shouldn't own computers.  But thanks to folks like you, I will keep trying.

    lol You will get the hang of it no doubt about it. We all go back later and look at those firsts and cringe. As to being a good sport, it wasn't the hub, it was the topic. I am one of those that could work if someone would give me a job even though I have a slight disability. Because the disability is slight I get no help from all that I paid into over the years, yet someone like my ex can get food stamps and will only work part-time so that he can keep those and then when he needs a pain med fix he sells the stamps to get cash to buy illegal prescriptions. I'm not one to try and go around the mountain so to speak, so I'm left searching for a job that I can physically do at an age where most don't want to hire. It's tiresome. So, that little rant said, keep working and you will do fine. Nice to have met you!
